Elijah: God's Fiery Prophet
Meet the Characters
Selfish and unhappy, Ahab is the evil ruler of the kingdom
of Israel. He's very rich, has lots of chariots, and a strong
army, but he always wants more.
Ahab's wife Jezebel is wicked through and through. She quickly
takes charge in Ahab's kingdom and sets up wicked idols to
her false god Baal. Cruel and scheming, she sets out to kill
every prophet of God.
Elijah is a heroic prophet of God with enough strength and
bravery to follow any orders God gives him. Elijah lives out
in the desert and mountains. He wears a rough coat made out
of camel's heir and a tough leather belt. But even a man of
such strong character can become discouraged when up against
the evil Jezebel.
Jezebel has 450 prophets of Baal. These evil men perform
perverted worship ceremonies which involve strange chants
and crazy dances.
Elisha is Elijah's follower and side kick. Unlike Elijah,
Elisha use to own a large farm and had many servants. When
Elijah calls him, Elisha leaves his comfortable life to follow
Elijah in his dangerous ministry.
Widow of Zarephath and her son
The Widow of Zarephath is a good women full of faith and
love. When Elijah meets her, she and her son are about to
starve to death. God allows Elijah to work a miracle so that
they never run out of food, but neither the widow nor Elijah
expect the tragedy that awaits the widow's son.
